In the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, the astounding results of a study involving 300 patients with Meniere’s disease were published earlier this year. While many factors may affect the onset of Meniere’s, the purpose of the study was to look at one possible cause, an upper cervical misalignment resulting from a car accident, whiplash, or head injury.
The Results of the Meniere’s Study
For the purpose of the study, patients were rated on a scale of 1-10 in regards to how bad symptoms were. Before treatment began, the average patient score was 8.5. Upper cervical care had a quick effect, reducing the average score to 3.0 in just 6 weeks. When patients were evaluated annually, scores dropped to 2.0 at one year, 1.4 at two years, and 0.9 at three years. Overall, patients saw improvement beyond 90%.
291 of the 300 patients involved in the study, an astounding 97%, claimed upper cervical care dramatically improved vertigo in particular, one of the primary symptoms of Meniere’s disease. The natural care also produced no major side effects. A mere 3% of participants said they experienced headaches.

The conclusion of this study was that individuals who have experienced trauma leading to vertigo and other Meniere’s symptoms should see an upper cervical chiropractor to have the C1 and C2 evaluated for subluxations.
